Yeah that was my next line – it was faster than they were playing it then.
Magical show, I remember thinking. I believe it is the only time they opened the second (electric) set with FOTD.

That fantasy>jude from this gig is one of, if not, the best played by the GD.

That's a good one, and perhaps an argument that they ought to have stopped there with that one. What would the dead have sounded like if they stopped playing particular covers when they finally nailed one?

I was there too (I guess I did see shows as late as '89).

Anyways, I recall leaving from LI with a friend and making him stop at the beer store so I could spend all my money on Schaefer 'suitcases'. The reason being that beer stores are not open on Sunday in Mass and I figured we would need libations and at the same time I could provide a 'service' by giving away cans of beer for $1 dollar donations. My friend was wholeheartedly against my idea so did not invest (he did feel free to drink however). Needless too say we had a great time, I did make my money back, made lots of thirsty friends, gave away lots of beer etc etc etc

Oh, and small tabs of paper were involved that day.

And my friend was going to VT the next day so I had to find my other LI friend at the show for a ride home, this is pre cell phone so it was no simple task. My strategy was to keep moving, so I just kept on dancing and grooving around the stadium and eventually ran smack into my ride back to LI.

Funny how it always seemed to work out ok like that (re: ride home) you reminded me of a similar circumstance years earlier – under the influence, totally grooving on the music and scene, but some anxiety about meeting up with the ride. Great times for sure…

Ditto that sentiment.

I remember it being hot as hell and then they broke out the fire hoses and sprayed the crowd up front. Grate show!

i remember being quite jealous of those being sprayed. it was hotter than a tube worm lounging by a deep sea thermal vent down on the field.

Yeah I didn't get any of that nice cool spray.

I also remember a grate drum circle in the north end zone. There must have been about 20 of them just jamming during the intermission. They were good!
